|With Margareta and the world class cellist Sonny Thet.|
Today, like any day, I'm also feeling particularily grateful for the dear friendship I've found in Margareta Ackerhans. Today is her Birthday. In the 1950s, she was trained to become a nurse in the Red Cross school in Stockholm. She decided to use her knowledge on a social and structural level. In the 1980s and 1990s, I must say she did some incredible pioneering work as she developed programmes for HIV-prevention, first in Gothenburg and then as an important contributor to the ten year long WHO project in Europe called Health Cities. She is furthermore a devoted expert and spokes woman for gender equality and female sexual and reproductive health issues. She has a true mother earth character and I admire her deeply.
Thanks, Margareta, for all the laughters we've shared along with insightful discussions about life. I'm looking forward to very many more to come. For now, I wish you a lovely Birthday. I congratulate you with this heartfelt music by the fantastic Sonny Thet.
